Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Dark Screams: Volume Three by Brian James Freeman and Richard Chizmar

Title: Dark Screams: Volume Three Dark Screams 3

Edited by: Brian James Freeman and Richard Chizmar

Publisher: Hydra – Random House Publishing

Published: May 12th, 2015

Rating: 3.5/5

This is, fairly obviously, the third volume in the Dark Screams series. It contains another five diverse, dark, short stories, all with twists in them somewhat reminiscent of the ‘Tales of the Unexpected” stories by Roald Dahl shown on television many years ago. As usual in these collections, the stories range from childhood encounters, pure horror to psychological thriller to just plain creepy romance! As with most collections of stories by different authors the appeal of the stories varies but overall I believe the collection worthy of the 3.5 stars I’ve given it, which is slightly lower than the earlier volumes. Having said that, some of the stories in this were brill but others just missed the mark as far as I was concerned. Again, no two stories in the collection are alike making this an anthology in which you’re not quite sure what you’ll be reading next!

Another great collection to have you screaming, even if only figuratively and a welcome addition to the series.

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
